Namaste...today is International Yoga Day. I began practicing Yoga a decade ago and have been a fan ever since. I do remember that before my first personal experience with yoga, my first thought was "yawn..." and I was concerned that afterwards I would feel that I hadn't worked my body. Well, I was completely wrong on both accounts. Yoga has been life changing for me. It not only helps to cope with stress and the daily struggles in one's every day life, but it has fostered a kindness towards my self from myself, not to mention that it is one of my favorite ways in which to "workout".
If you're looking to become stronger, leaner and more flexible, it is time to give yoga a try. Regardless if you are a novice, or regarded as a yogi, we are celebrating International Yoga Day with some of our favorite trends.

Be Kind to Your Feet
As I learned quickly, Yoga is all at once calming and physically demanding. Once your body gets heated up, it is hard to keep steady on a sweaty yoga mat. Yogitoes to the rescue!
